Life with Ella {week 25}

Little Miss is starting to be quite difficult during these little photo shoots! She is just into EVERYTHING! Here's a very small sample of outtakes:


Anyway. Here's a look at our past week!

On Monday, we survived some crazy storms...

...and also discovered a way to make Ella swallow the rice cereal: give her a bottle nipple to suck on after each bite! (This was my husband's genius idea, and it actually worked!)

On Tuesday, we went to our play group, where Ella flirted shamelessly with little Will.

And Tuesday night, someone finally sat up long enough for me to get a picture!

On Wednesday, we discovered a new toy: mommy's ring

And we also discovered that Ella can hold her own bottle! 

{This was on my crazy day of running errands. I don't usually feed Ella in the car, but I was desperately trying to multi-task!}

Thursday was story time at the library! We had fun with the scarves! 

It was great seeing April and Christina there, too, with their sweet girls! 

Afterwards, we stopped by Alphabet Soup to pick up a few birthday gifts for some friends! :)

We also had a bath Thursday night, and this picture is too funny not to share.

Cracks me up! :)

Friday, we went out to lunch with Kathryn at Genghis Grill. Ella was a little unsure about all of the loud noises in the restaurant!

We also stopped by Lowe's to pick up a hook for our hummingbird feeder.

Ella is saying, "Don't mess with me, people!" She has been so funny lately!

Saturday, after we checked our email...

...we went to Kid to Kid because they were having a big sale! 

I didn't find any Lilly or smocked dresses, but I did manage to pick up a few cute outfits for fall!

We also stopped by Harris Teeter. Ella was fascinated with the lights in the wine section!

{Don't judge. I usually leave her with Travis when I go grocery shopping, but he was golfing!}

We finished off the day with rice cereal...she was so determined to feed herself!

And then, we had some swimming lessons in the bathtub.

This child needs legit swimming lessons ASAP. She loves the water!

Yesterday, I went to brunch with friends for Katie's birthday, while Ella stayed with her dad and played on his iPad. 

{Outfit is mine from 1985!}

She ended up "liking" her own photo stream picture! She is too funny! 

Coming up soon, I will finally post pictures from our zoo trip 2 weeks ago!! :) 
Have a great week!


  1. She gets cuter every post! What zoo?? Can't wait to hear!!

  2. Flirting and diamond rings - you better watch out! ;)
